Wake Forest School of Medicine’s Sports Medicine Orthopaedic Fellowship Program prepares you to pursue an academic career in sports medicine through outstanding research and teaching experiences, coupled with extensive clinical experience with a wide variety of athletes.

Why Train at Wake Forest?

The program is centered around clinical rotations with the two primary sports medicine attendings at the Medical Center. This includes both operating room and inpatient experiences.

You’ll have access to digital operating rooms, equipped with flat screens, cameras and digital recording equipment. Operating rooms are connected to our digital radiology systems and electronic medical record and hospital order systems.

Our Sports Medicine Fellowship Program draws on a rich heritage in sports medicine education, continuing a legacy begun by George Rovere, MD and Walton Curl, MD.

The program is based at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, which also includes the Brenner Children’s Hospital, the Wake Forest School of Medicine and the Medical Plaza - Miller (formerly CompRehab Plaza). Fellows also gain experience at the undergraduate campuses of Wake Forest University and Winston-Salem State University.
